The show, held on the SM Guy Memorial Field, featured competitions in flower arranging, handicrafts and fruit and vegetables, displays by local art and history groups and a pet show.

The public also got their first look at Manea’s new skate park in action.

Also in attendance were members of the local fire brigade and Manea band, who were offering visitors the chance to try playing their instruments.

Belinda Carson, one of the organisers, said: “It was a lovely day and we had excellent support from the Gala Committee and the parish council.
